A sting

A lash,
which from an eye might fall,...
will not be felt-

so small a thing
will not be mourned
 
A tear
which from the eye might fall,...
is like a thorn-

so small the sting
it, must be borne

It dissipates, upon your face
soon disappears, all trace is gone,...  

yet leaves a face, forever burned

    This one dings me, Carrie. I'm suffering from the weeping eye. A crust forms over my lashes. Your poem is wonderful. Love, daver

    dear carrie, there so many words in this poem that i would love to use. it has inspired me greatly. and i can see a great poem comming out of it. so far it's words on a piece of paper. a few words from this poem. but i have something special in mind that you will love. i'll let you know when. tommarrow for sure. T.S.
